Manon had moved around every year for 15 years when she decided to convert a van to live in full-time. After two years of vanlife, she was ready for some more comforts — especially during the winter — and decided to build a tiny house on wheels!

With her cabinet-making skills, she was able to design and build an awesome THOW with some funky rooflines and plenty of space for her book collection. She lives on a rural plot in the French countryside with some other tiny house dwellers.

  • Manon had never put down roots, living somewhere different every year for 15 years! At last, she was ready for “home” but didn’t know where to settle.
  • Having worked as a cabinet-maker for more than a decade, Manon came to her tiny house with some building experience.
  • It took her 9 months to complete the build, working primarily alone the whole time.
  • Her home centers around her books and her cats, and she has an extensive library on display for her to enjoy!
  • She eats vegan and has a large kitchen with two picture windows to give her the best views as she prepares meals.
